Huskies women’s team loses but comes away with goals accomplished
Huskies volleyball faced off against Durham on Wednesday and came away with split results.
The women’s team started off the night with a strong fight but it wasn’t enough to pull out a win.
Durham started the game with two easy wins in the first two sets (25-15, 25-12) but in the third set George Brown College (GBC) came back swinging.
With a close third set, the lead went back and forth until Durham slid ahead and won 25-23, and left an early defeat for the Huskies.
GBC lost the game with a final score of 3-0.
With Durham being the first team in the league, and an undefeated season so far, Choi was happy with the Huskies’ fight.
“We want to see the fight and we instilled that from the very beginning,” Said head coach Daphne Choi, “Right from the moment we stepped onto the court we said ‘have the fight, no matter what the score is.'”
GBC’s women’s team is currently 7th in the league with 5-10 wins.
In the following match, Huskies came back with the win over Durham. With an overall successful performance, GBC’s men’s team earned their first 3-0 game of the season.
Maintaining a consistent lead throughout the matches, GBC won each set with a similar gap between the two teams (25-19, 25-19, 25-18).
“I don’t think we made, did anything differently than we have in other matches but I think we did it for the whole match. Which is something we’ve been struggling to do for the whole year so I’m very proud of how the guys put together a whole match today,” said head coach Garrett May.
The men’s team currently sits in sixth place in the east division with a 8-7 record.
Both the men and the women’s teams play next on Saturday, Feb 2. at an away game against Loyalist College.
